Memoirs of a Terrorist
Memoirs of a Terrorist is a haunting experimental novel about a daughter raped by her father. Throughout the stations of her picaresque life in California and Europe, Megan Lloyd fails to bring to consciousness an awareness of the crime committed against her that she repressed long ago. This fatal blind spot eventually reveals itself in the sexual bondage murder of her lover in a Munich hotel. In a parallel and complementary narrative, Lloyd's rapist father both analyses the posthumous writings of his daughter for clues to her behavior and confesses his crime in a quest for personal expiation as he faces his own death.
